After Nick L. underwent total hip replacement surgery, everything from climbing stairs to walking down the street was a painful struggle. Throughout his time at physical therapy, he started to regain strength and mobility from specific exercises and aquatic therapy.
“I had total right hip replacement on 12/21/18 . I found Chris at Peak Performance in New Hyde Park and couldn’t believe how fast I started to regain my range of motion and strength in my hip and legs. I met Chris for the first time in early January, not being able to navigate stairs without going one step at a time, and was experiencing pain in my right leg when I walked too far. Now, I am practically running up stairs and walking every time I have the opportunity to do so. Once something gets easy for me, Chris changes it up. It is never the same old thing, I am always doing new, more challenging exercised to get all my muscles that have been dormant for months all firing up again. Now, we’re also working in the pool with Aquatic therapy techniques.
Chris is also part of a top notch and extremely knowledgeable team. Every time I’m at a physical therapy session, there are at least 6 staff members at every turn I take, all of them willing to help me. Thanks to my Physical Therapist, Chris, and everyone at Peak Performance- I finally have my quality of life back! “
